Nokia released a new version of their PC Suite about a month ago. PC Suite is the PC software for Nokia phone owners to manage the phones on the computer. The software application seems to grow in size with every release, the current version is Nokia PC Suite 188.8.131.52 with a size of 34 Megabytes.
Basic functions that Nokia PC Suite 7 provides are backing up important data of the mobile phone, synchronizing all kinds of data like contacts, emails and calendars and providing Internet access for the computer the mobile phone is connected to.
That is obviously not all. The PC Suite can check the availability of new firmwares for selected mobile phones and instantly download them to the computer. Besides that you get a file manager and administration of messages, contacts and multimedia files on the mobile phone.
It's furthermore possible to install applications on the mobile phone. My personal opinion is that it looks like the new version of the Nokia PC Suite comes with improved performance, everything feels a tad faster and more responsive.
Update: The latest version of what is now called Nokia Suite has a size of almost 90 Megabytes. It has grown considerable ever since we have posted this news article here on Ghacks.
Update 2: Nokia seems to maintain multiple versions of the PC suite. We have found another version on the same website that has a size of 66 Megabyte. It is not clear how the programs differ.
It is probably safest to download the latest version of Nokia's PC Suite from a third party download repository to make sure the latest version of the program is downloaded and installed on the computer.
Softpedia for instance lists Nokia PC suite 184.108.40.206 as the latest version at the time of writing.
